Try removing the mirror and replacing it with an generic aquatic poster print.

Might look less busy then.   ::) ::) ::)

I like the expression "Viechertank" ;-)
I would not put my hand in there for sure, don´t want to live with a single hand for the rest of my life!

Top o' the bookshelf:



I really need to get these guys finished and painted...
Still, a good conversation piece.  :))

My youngest recently had a birthday, and wanted an aquarium, so I set it up for her.  While the water was seasoning for a few days prior to adding fish, I couldn't help having a little fun with it:



Devil's aquarium!
Don't do that! The rubber goes out and then the pH level is out of wack!

Some new Faunacasts models arrived recently:

Ceratosaurus:




With CollectA Camptosaurus - so perfect!

Suchomimus:





Another pair of really nice theropods for the collection by Malcolm.  ^-^

Thanks, Libra!  Having recently received the Faunacasts wicked cool Mastodon, thought I would show my group of prehistoric elephants (mammoths not included  ;))  Really wish I  had that Kaiyodo UHA Platybelodon.  Anyone up for a trade?
Anyway, here's the gang of tuskers:

Also, I visited the Smithsonian this summer; there is of course this amazing African elephant in the main concourse:



There was an elephant exhibit on the second floor, including these gems of, I'm guessing, bronze 1:35 models of all kinds of pachyderms:






Good thing they were bronze models bolted to the woodwork,  'cause I certainly would have like to take  a few home with me.  Unfortunately, nothing like this was sold in the gift shop :(.

I have plenty more pics of the rest of the museum that I will put up eventually, dinos, mammals, dioramas, whatever, and I will put them in the appropriate places.  Fossils and bones are always cool, but the dioramas were pretty weak and 30-40 years out of date - still they bring in the crowds, and the museum is free.  Be sure to check it out if you're ever in DC. ;D

 :) Lovely Elephants, Chris.
..... and I love those bronzes from DC. An affordable series like this (plastic, resin ...) would be irresistible for me.
The Gomphotherium looks a bit like the one from Bullyland.

Are you referring to the large, white model? That is made by Galileo Hernandez, of Geenemodels.com. Good luck getting any orders from that site however... :-X

The Deinotherium  is the clear winner in this group for sheer awesomeness, although all of the models were pretty cool.  Sorry I couldn't get any other angles; only  Spiderman could have gotten the other side!

Alright if I ask a identity question?  What's that model at the lower right

No problemo, it's Deinotherium by Acheson Creations/Primaeval Designs:

Scale is about 1:48.

is it possible to have this thread pinned as a form of a radman memorial? we are going to miss the progression of this thread.

That's a really good idea. I think it should be.

In a broader sense, always thought it would be a great feature if you could click on a member's name and have the ability to pull up a list of threads originated by that member specifically
